How Boda Ad system works

Every content and media website and Ecommerce website work the same way; posts visibility are limited to number of followers and/or number of visitor to the post’s category.

Boda platform works the same way. Ads posted in a category are seen by people who visit the ads category. Also, newer ad posts in a category push down older ads, that is, the older post goes down and new post stays on top until it’s rendered old by newer posts.

Ad Boost

For Ad post to be visible for longer time, there are three ad boost types you can use.

  • Featured Boost
  • Top Boost
  • Bump up Boost
